Milwaukee trial lawyer and jury consultant Anne Reed gives the latest issue of Blawg Review a jury-selection twist in Blawg Review #127. The roundup of law-related weblog posts is organized around a set of reminders about jury selection, as follows:
- Assume nothing;
- Look for leaders . . .
- . . . and dissenters;
- Watch for points of view;
- Look for skills;
- Notice how they process information;
- Know what generational differences mean, and don't;
- Pay attention to the quiet ones;
- Remember they have lives;
- Not all jurors are like you;
- Some just want to get back to work;
- Learn the publicity, whether it's national . . .
- . . . or local;
- They want the big picture;
- If you're lucky, you'll have a juror artist;
- Make a good impression; and
- Remember the majesty.
Check it out. And remember that the Blawg Review weblog has information about next week's host and instructions how to get your blawg posts reviewed in upcoming issues.
